PA: Special Report: Drug epidemic impacting foster care system (Includes video) (Correction)
WENY – May 03, 2017

Local Family and Child Service Departments are realizing the drug epidemic is tearing families apart – parents with addictions are going to rehab or jail, and the children are left needing a new caregiver.
